This November 10th- 13th, twenty-four of the premier master sand sculptors from all over the world will be competing for 1st place on the #1 beach. The Siesta Key Crystal Classic has become a favorite of many of the professional sand sculptors who have competed here. Citing the beauty and cleanliness of the pristine white sand, sculptors have remarked that their sculptures look almost as if they are "carved in marble." In only 24 sculpting hours, (spanning the four-day event), the master sculptors create sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery. The five-day art event will include: Master sand sculptors competing with all day viewing Friday through Tuesday; over 60 vendors Friday through Monday; live entertainment through Sunday starting Friday at noon; and an amateur sand sculptor contest on Saturday. Off-site shuttle service will be offered through SCAT, routes 10 & 11 throughout the event and sculpture viewing with the special Mobi-Mat on the sand for easier walking on Tuesday, Nov. 17th.
